Good evening, my dear ladies and gentlemen!
Aaaand again, since the last journal I didn't upload a lot of things. Because my laptop finally broke. You remember me speaking of it as an emo-diva? Yeah, now she finally killed herself, but is still diva enough to keep me hoping she'll come back to life once. Actually it's some kind of hardware problem, I can start the computer, but the drive won't activate accurately and also the screen remains black. After a few minutes, the fan starts roaring and buzzing like there is a fucking nest of hornets in it, but nothing really happens
I'll give that thing to a specialist within the next week, hoping that they can repair it or at least get my stuff from the harddrive! ALL MY FREAKING DRAWINGS, A TON OF PHOTOS, IDEAS, STORY SCRAPS, PHOTOS OF MY FRIENDS, MY FAVOURITE GAMES, IMPORTANT SOFTWARE, ALL IN ALL MY WHOLE FUCKING LIFE is in there. That's pitiful, but true
So I got a new laptop, more a notebook, from which I'm writing right now, but it's pretty slow and has the worst internet connection ever
That causes internet lags or breakdowns and my skype messages (my only social media platform where I stay in contact with my friends, I'm not on facebook, twitter, whatsapp and all that) sometimes take up to ten minutes to be sent. So that's not really an upgrade
Also I had to fight through a ton of new deviations from the last few weeks, so... sorry if I didn't comment or answer a lot
Bla bla bla, enough of that.
Now the important stuff. My ex-music teacher finally gave the opera-poster back to me, so I'll take a photo and finally upload it within the next days.
Also, my new bed is done and it's FREAKING AWESOME! I love how it turned out, although it is completely different from what I wanted to make in the first place... but doesn't matter, it's great
It's completely made out of wood, some very rough and natural planks and four very very old but still sturdy and big wooden bars for the bed-legs. So in the next days, I'll also upload photos of the old and the new bed in comparison
It's a very big difference, seriously
Actually the bed is not completely finished yet, I'd like to add a shelf at the side of it to put my books, medicines, lamp and alarm clock on, also I would like to try to carve something into the plank at the head of the bed. Some kind of stylized animals maybe, a wolf and a deer for example.
Ouh yeah, the next MPS is upcoming this spring/summer! Maybe you remember last year I made my celtic druid outfit, the guy called Foubhan (Fuvan spoken). This year, my dear friend and brother
, my girlfriend and I will do a group of northmen, a few young people from south sweden on their voyage through germania and the frankish empire. Atano will do an upgraded version of his character Thardulstein, the young blacksmith who wants to become a berserk. Thardulstein from last year
Sara, my girlfriend, will do a character that is... at least visually, a female version of Floki, from Vikings. Æska, that's her name, brews mead with her granddad. She is very adventurous and pretty jerky, but also a pretty good fighter who also builds wooden shields.
I will do a character that is also pretty similar to Floki (He's an amazing character, what can I say ), his name is Rhunar and he's a fisherman who grew up with Thardulstein and
Æska. He never wanted to become a viking or a warrior, but he's pretty skilled with a short axe and a dagger too. I made a few outfit sketches and drawings of the characters, so I think I'll scan and upload them too.
Aaaaaaand I started playing around with the sewing machine I got for my birthday and made some kind of vest crossbred with a tails It looks kinda cool, maybe I'll take some photos
It'll take a few days until the next uploads, cause I'll have to set up the new laptop and eventually get the data from my old laptop first.
Aaaand yeah, that's it
Congratulations if you really read all this crap, you've wasted a few minutes of your life! But thanks!
Now have a nice evening... or night or morning or whatever daytime is where you are right now!
